DEBUNKING THE RELEVANCE OF CLASSICAL VOICE TYPES
Robert Lunte, founder of The Vocalist Studio and author/producer of the acclaimed vocal training program, The Four Pillars of Singing, explains why traditional classical voice classifications ( vocal Fach ) are not relevant to contemporary singers and techniques. Baritones, stop worrying! You CAN sing high, but you have to have the right training techniques available.
“The German Fach (pl. Fächer, literally “compartment” or also “subject (of study)”, here in the sense of “(vocal) specialization”) (German pronunciation: [ˈfax, ˈfɛçɐ]) system is a method of classifying singers, primarily opera singers, according to the range, weight, and color of their voices.”
